At the age of nine, Jeff Smith dreamt up a cute, little character he named Fone Bone. More than a decade later, Bone became an overnight success, rocketing Smith to a level few independent cartoonists achieve. Published world-wide and winner of countless awards, Bone would seemingly be a career unto itself, but Jeff Smith isn't one to rest on his laurels. DC's Shazam: "Monster Society of Evil" and his newest creator-owned series "RASL" are proof that he is still one of the best cartoonists in the business. Now, Eric Nolen-Weathington explores the career of Jeff Smith, a true Modern Master, through a career-spanning interview with the artist, a discussion of his creative process, and mountains of rare and unseen art, including a huge gallery of commissioned pieces, plus 8 pages of full-color work.

Jeff Smith

Jeff Smith, born February 27, 1960, is an American cartoonist best known as the creator of the self-published comic book series Bone. Jeff was born in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania and grew up in Columbus, Ohio.

He learned about cartooning from comic strips, comic books, and animated TV shows. Smith has cited Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts as a very early influence on his understanding of comics. He has also named Walt Kelly's Pogo, which he discovered at the age of nine when a classmate brought a collection of the comics to school, as his "biggest influence in writing comics". Smith began to create comics with the "Bone" characters as early as 1970, when he was about 10 years old.

For his work on Bone, Smith has received numerous awards, among them ten Eisner Awards and eleven Harvey Awards. In 1995 and 1996 he won the National Cartoonists Society's award for Comic Books.

His most recent series, RASL, focused on an art thief who hops through dimensional barriers, hiding out on various parallel worlds.
